BAD NEWS! The Polygamist is no more .. :(

I have decided to discontinue the Ekdahl Polygamist until further notice. It breaks my fucking heart, but i see no alternative. Long story short, the Polygamist in its current form is much too complicated to build, takes too long, have too many things that can go wrong with it, is nowhere near generating enough cash - and all this, makes it infuriatingly frustrating to build. Nevertheless, there might be another Ekdahl Polygamist in the future if i can change production methods. Sorry to disappoint, but nobody's as disappointed as me :(


  1. Sorry to hear this, it was top of my shopping list. It was something new and interesting for long time.

    Wish you all the best!

  2. why not make it open source diy?

    1. As much as i love open source, i spent three years designing the synth and while i don't mind other people building my design for free, i would not be cool with anyone else making money off of it - this is a constant dilemma. I'm considering making an updated version of the synth in the future, or perhaps even release parts of it in modular form. I have nevertheless considered for many years the possibility of releasing schematics and source code to the public, it's just a matter of not screwing myself in the process.
